Works but cheap quality... (see review)

The adapter is exactly what it is supposed to be: to install old video lights over the new Sony hotshoe (no electrical connection though). However, it fails on something so stupid: the standard shoe receptacle is too narrow! so the video light does not slide in (also tried some flashes with same result). I had to widen up the sides of the metal shoe receptacle using some heavy tools until I managed to get the video light to slide in without getting stuck. Now it works fine, but it proves no quality control on the parts. I hope this is not the case for everybody... but be prepared if you buy it. I recommend it because it is the only adapter I could find for the purpose.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a Sony Consumer camera with the "very little" shoe. The camera is Sony HDR-CX560. I am wondering if this Adapter with to this camera or if I would need a different adapter?
PETER M  Shopper: I have the Sony Exmor R HDR-CX700 which has the same shoe mount configuration as yours. Relative to the answer to your question, Yes. The shoe fits and has a swivel base so you can angle the in azimuth the adapter. It works adequately for small, high intensity lighting which helps in low light situations. Hope the info helps. Take care and Happy Holidays (Merry Christmas too)!
